The Board is constantly seeking to enhance its structure to meet the skills and experience required for the effective oversight and governance of SEMPHN’s activities.
The current SEMPHN Board comprises nine directors, including three specific General Practitioner positions whose terms expire on a three-yearly basis (staggered in the first triennium). This means that there is one GP director position as well as one non-GP director position elected each year. Retiring directors have the right to apply for reappointment. This provides for an annual cycle of Board renewal, with the Board’s Nominations Committee reviewing applications prior to the Annual Meeting in November each year.
Applications are now open for a General Practitioner non-executive director. In line with SEMPHN’s priority areas, SEMPHN is particularly interested in applications from GPs with an interest or specialty in chronic disease, eHealth, mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health or aged care.
Applications are also open for a second non-executive director where being a general practitioner is not a requirement. People working in primary care in the SEMPHN region who have a strong governance background are encouraged to apply for this position.
Knowledge and experience in best practice corporate and clinical governance structures, policies and processes (particularly in the not-for-profit context) will be looked upon favourably.
In addition, the Nominations Committee may conduct its own informal search process to identify potential Board members with particular skills and expertise.
